Spring Trends to Wear Now…Pastels

Happy Monday all!

How was everyone’s weekend? Great I hope! As you can see, I got a new haircut and color! I made the decision to retire my mohawk on Friday and luckily my hairdresser had an opening on Saturday afternoon.   I absolutely LOVE my new color and I can’t stop smiling about it!

In my post “3 Trends To Try This Spring”, I talked about how pastels are going to be HOT for the season.  With Spring a little over a week away, you can make them apart of your wardrobe now. Try picking a pastel  (pink, yellow and blue are my favorites) that looks good on you.  Once you find colors that work, pair them with neutrals to ease into the trend.  Also wearing colors that historically work well with each other (ex. blue and yellow) is another simple way to wear the trend. I’ve always loved the combo of pink and green together, so I incorporated them into my work outfit today.

Will you be giving pastels a try this Spring?

Have a wonderful day!

    Love your hair! And the pink and green looks awesome. I love pastels and electric colors, and I also like pairing colors differently. I look to Nature for color combinations such as turquiose and pink; red and grey; yellow and blue; and on and on.

      Thank you! I like your suggestion of red & grey. I never thought to pair them together. See youve now inspired me!

    Love pink! I will try some pink and green.

    Also, your hair looks great! It’s so funny because I just decided to try the mohawk (sides shaved, anyway) thing, maybe this week! Wish me luck. 🙂

      Yes! I loved my mowhawk when I had it. I felt so powerful when I wore it! Definitely try pink and green. I think you’ll like it!

    That hair color is lovely on you! I kinda miss the mohawk, LOL, but your new hair suits you too. And I’m dying over those slacks – have you worn them on the blog before? So chic, particularly with the metallic shoes! I”m back on shopping hiatus again (sigh) so you’re giving me good suggestions for shopping my closet. Go ‘head Ms. G!

    • March 11, 2014 / 5:49 pm

      Thank you! I had a lot of fun with my mohawk but alas all good things must come to an end! Yes Ive worn the slacks in a post before (“A” is for Awesome). I wear them all the time and since the weather was (sort of) cooperating I felt brave to wear them with my gold pumps. Im trying to get back on the “no shopping” bandwagon, but Ive been failing miserably! LOL

      Thank you! I love leopard print with dark green. Its such a great combo!

  14. March 10, 2014 / 10:01 pm

    I love that colour green. Looks gorgeous with your new hair do!

    I absolutely LOVE your new cut and color! Your new ‘do looks great on you! The pink looks really nice on you too. Love it with the teal jacket! The pink really brightens up the teal/green color.

    I don’t look too good in pastels myself but I put my pastels on the bottom. The other day I wore an olive green top with pale pink pants. Your last post on the “trends to try” inspired me!

    • March 11, 2014 / 5:46 pm

      Thank you so much! Im glad my post inspired you! That makes me very happy!

    Your new cut and color look great! I’ve been watching your blog for a few weeks and have been meaning to tell you how much I love your wardrobe color choices. Do you find you’re making different choices with the new hair color? (Love the pink and dark teal/green from today!)

    • March 15, 2014 / 12:53 am

      Thank you so much! Thank you for supporting my blog, it means alot to me. The only different choices Ive been making due to my new color is my lipstick. I find myself wearing my red lipstick more than before.
